Tips For Avoiding White Spots After Braces

Screen Shot 2017 03 07 at 9.42.41 AM

Braces don't have to mean white spots on your teeth. Dr. Chelsea Mason recommends these 5 easy steps to avoid white spots on your teeth after braces:

1) Always brush after you eat anything or drink a pop.
2) Use an electric toothbrush or toothpaste with fluoride.
3) Always brush your teeth for two minutes.
4) Always use mouthwash and floss at least twice a day.
5) Drink more water. Drink less tea, coffee, and pop.

Whether or not you had braces, it's important to visit the dentist at least once every six months. If you need an appointment, call us at (989) 686-6110 today.


Use Your Tax Refund to Create a Radiant Smile

A beautiful smile is within your reach with our Invisalign system, perfect for teenagers and adults.

Invisalign uses a series of comfortable, removable, transparent aligners to gradually straighten your teeth. Invisalign is a gentle, effective and affordable alternative to traditional metal braces. Because the aligners are virtually invisible, most people won't even know you're wearing them. The results, though, are unmistakable.

Call Dr. Mason today to schedule your free consultation to determine if Invisalign is right for you.

We're Celebrating Children's Dental Health Month

Attachment 1
Helping your child develop good oral hygiene practices pays off with a lifetime of good habits. During Children's Dental Health Month in February, Dr. Mason reminds parents and children of connection between dental health and overall well-being and happiness.

Dr. Mason recommends several key practices that help your child form a solid foundation for a healthy and beautiful smile. First, make sure your son or daughter visits our office for the first time at about a year old. At that first appointment, we assess your child's oral health, including evaluating for decay and nutritional dietary concerns related to sugar consumption and oral home care needs. Most importantly, we use these early visits to encourage a positive lifelong attitude toward dentists and oral health.

In addition, Dr. Mason suggests:
  • As soon as your child is able to rinse and spit, it's time to add a fluoride rinse to their daily oral hygiene routine.
  • Always use a toothpaste with fluoride. Contrary to some misleading media reports, the amount of toothpaste used to brush your tooth is not enough to cause any harm. If you have any questions about this, talk to Dr. Mason.
  • As a rule of thumb, children need help brushing their teeth until they can tie their shoes alone.
  • Avoid drinks with added sugar, such as pop and juice. If you do serve sugary drinks as a treat, never provide them in a sippy cup.
  • Never put your baby or toddler to bed with a bottle.
  • Choose tap water for a sparkling smile.
  • Brush for 2 minutes twice a day. Floss every day.
If you have any questions about how to enhance your family's oral health, please call our office at (989) 686-6110.

New Equipment Makes a Great First Impression

Screen Shot 2017 01 05 at 11.37.14 AM

Chelsea Mason Dental has added new state-of-the-art digital impression system designed to make your visit more comfortable and your exam more accurate.

Our new iTero® Element™ Intraoral Scanner creates dental impressions without uncomfortable, putty-filled dental impression trays. You can breathe and swallow as normal while we scan your mouth. It's fast, accurate and there's no unpleasant taste or smell.

Best of all, though, the resulting 3D scan of tooth surfaces and gum tissue is more detailed and precise than the older method.

Dr. Mason uses the 3D model of your mouth to create crowns, bridges, implants and Invisalign clear aligenrs and retainers. This allows Dr. Mason to create devices with a precision fit. Dr. Mason can even show you how your teeth may look after Invisalign treatment, so you can decide if you want to go forward with treatment.
